Walk from Heysham #6

 

The Polo tower,  (650 × 433 - morecambe.gov.uk)

one of Morecambe's landmarks is about to be demolished.

 

The Polo Tower is 168ft tall and started life in 1974 as the Space Tower at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

It was moved to Morecambe to make way for the Big One rollercoaster.

The tower, sponsored by Polo mints, opened in 1995 and had a revolving circular platform which went up and down the tower.

Frontierland closed in 2000 and the rest of the site was cleared for redevelopment.

Nothings kept for posterity these days is it!
